TREVOR GAGNON (Nat) always gave the same answer when he was asked, at six years old, what he wanted to be when he grew up. "I want to be a famous actor...I want to be on TV."
In the last six years, Gagnon has indeed been involved in almost every type of acting. He has appeared in commercials and magazine ads, performed side-by-side with incredible actors in several films, lent his voice to animated characters in projects for both film and TV, and starred in a hit comedy series for CBS opposite one of the industry's funniest ladies. He is a regular on "The New Adventures of Old Christine," starring the Emmy-winning actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Gagnon plays her son, Ritchie. He is also a series regular on Cartoon Network's "Happy Monster Band," in which he voices the character L.O., one of the silly monsters who teach preschoolers about the many wonderful countries around the world.
Currently, Gagnon is in Austin, Texas filming the Warner Bros. feature Shorts, a new family adventure/comedy written and directed by Robert Rodriguez, creator of the Spy Kids trilogy. Gagnon stars opposite William H. Macy, Jon Cryer, James Spader and Leslie Mann.
Gagnon made his acting debut in "Iron Jawed Angels," a television drama about women's struggles to achieve equality and their triumph with the Women's Suffrage Movement in the early 1900's. The telefilm starred Hilary Swank, Angelica Huston and Patrick Dempsey.
Director Tim Burton's feature Big Fish was the next big opportunity to come Gagnon's way. After a long and involved audition process, he landed a part alongside Albert Finney, Jessica Lange, Danny DeVito and Ewan McGregor in this magical film.
Gagnon has appeared in several television commercials, including a Mederma scar-cream ad in which his image appeared on the pages of numerous parenting magazines. Two more movies followed, Loggerheads and Southern Belles. Both were filmed near his hometown in North Carolina.
As a way to give back to the community, Gagnon has spent time on the "Dr. Phil" show as a celebrity guest and donated his time to various charitable organizations such as the Ronald McDonald House and the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.
